Drake is no stranger to the art of the workout selfie, a.k.a. the thirst trap: he's been posting regular updates from the gym, and riling up a maelstrom of thirst from his fans in the comments, for a minute now. Ever since he sustained a knee injury last fall, the rapper has been sharing insights into his recovery process through a series of training photos and videos.
At the start of the year, Drake posted several weight training photos and videos to his Instagram Story, in one of which his abs—and, ahem, something else—were visible beneath his workout clothes, and said that he was "grinding for recovery every day." A few months later, he once again shared a workout video which offered up a glimpse of his progress as he flexed his arms and showed off his chest while posing shirtless.
And just last night, he dropped another thirst trap on his IG Story. This time, it was a sweaty shirtless selfie taken in the mirror of a boxing gym, presumably taken in between sparring sessions, if the gloves that Drake is still wearing in the shot are any indication.
The musician's chest, shoulders, arms and abs are all on show, as are a number of his many, many tattoos—although his black shorts are a lot longer than the length that fellow celebs like Dwayne Johnson and Milo Ventimiglia seem to have agreed on prior to the start of summer. Who knows, maybe he's abstaining from #Quadsummer until his knee injury is fully healed.
